The Grange Fall Lyceum lecture series: NAVIGATION

How do we find our way in the world? This series will explore some aspects of human and animal navigation, from recognizing landmarks in the night sky to cartography, vertical route-finding, and the long-distance migrations of birds and fish.

Using Maps to Navigate Space and Place on Lake Champlain

At their most fundamental level, maps help us navigate geographic space, allowing us to get from Point A to Point B. But they also help navigate our relationship with the landscape around us, serving as both canvas and historical record of this relationship and of our sense of place. We will explore how maps created with a range of technologies have been used to tell the stories of our relationship with Lake Champlain since its earliest exploration.


Ryan Mitchell manages communications and publications for the Lake Champlain Basin Program. He focused on historical geography as a graduate student, and cartography and Geographic Information Systems have been part of his work since.

Suggested donation: $5 / students free.
